Playing with Word Collage Cricut Cartridge--Fun Fun

I am trying to get a head start on some Christmas gifts and also play with my crafting toys.  Playing with my toys being as important as the gifts...LOL.  I love the look of the new Word Collage Plaques you see all over and the Vinyl wall decor which was one of the reasons I bought my Cricut Expression in the first place.  Here is what I made yesterday: 

The cartridge shows this as a 5.5 inch phrase but I made it 9 inches long.  It is made from the adhesive backed vinyl.  I didn't want to mount it onto a plain colored background or placque so went to my LSS and they had this wonderful piece of CS I thought would be awesome for my plaque.  I had mounted the ds onto a piece of 4X9 cardboard which I save  for this very purpose.  I then transferred the vinyl phrase to the  cs using the transfer paper and carefully peeled it off and walla my awesome Vino project for my SIL who has a wine themed kitchen. 
I had some corkboard I am mounting this piece onto, but I just got it cut tonight.  I will then mount that onto a piece of balsa wood for stability and figure out the hanging technique,  When I get it all done I will show you the completed project.  Should only take another day or two :)

Let me know what you think.  Have a great day!!!
